Resolving IP and technology disputes through WIPO Mediation

  • This event has passed.

Intellectual Property (IP) and technology disputes continue to arise in a wide range of business transactions. The length and cost of conventional dispute processes frequently cause significant business disruption or distraction.

 

Mediation has proven highly effective in achieving beneficial, timely and cost-efficient results for parties in IP and trademark disputes. The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (WIPO Center) offers specialized IP mediation which parties may select as a more advantageous alternative to traditional court litigation and which includes the use of free online case management tools.

In addition, parties involved in trademark proceedings before the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) may benefit from complimentary WIPO Mediation (for mediations filed before August 31, 2020) as well as from the IPOS Enhanced Mediation Promotion Scheme, which provides financial support to parties who opt for mediation to resolve their IP disputes in Singapore. Parties involved in any copyright disputes in Singapore can also benefit from complimentary WIPO Mediation in the same period.

In this webinar, you will learn how WIPO Mediation can help you resolve your IP and technology disputes and its practical advantages from WIPO Mediator Francine Tan, a legal practitioner with extensive experience helping businesses manage their IP and trademark rights and WIPO Center Representative Chiara Accornero. You will also hear from Sok Yee See Tho, IPOS Principal Legal Counsel, who will share IPOS’ perspectives on mediation for their cases.

Who should attend this webinar?

IP owners and agents, business executives, brand managers, entrepreneurs, startup managers, lawyers and in-house counsel.
